Blue-Green Connections, the City of Dunedin and Keep Pinellas Beautiful invite all who enjoy our local waters to stand together in support of keeping our waters healthy and against offshore drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.

WHEN
8:00-9:30 – Registration (Just east of the restrooms on he south side of the causeway)
8:00 – 9:30am – Causeway Cleanup
9:40 – 10am – Words from city commissioners, staff, and environmental groups
10:00 – Join hands (or not) and form a line in the sand to stand in solidarity against offshore drilling

WHO
You! Hands Across the Sand is a movement made up of people from all walks of life; parents, friends, neighbors, small business owners, and more. We span political lines, geographic boundaries, and socioeconomic groups. We are united by the desire to protect our oceans, marine life, wildlife, our environment and our way of life.
WHAT TO BRING/HOW TO ARRIVE
We recommend bringing sunscreen, a hat or sunglasses, and a reusable bottle to stay hydrated. If you forget your bottle, there will be a (very) limited supply of Hope Spot water bottles for sale and water fountains nearby. We encourage a reduced use of fossil fuels, so carpooling, biking, walking and skateboarding are all highly encouraged!
AFTERWARDS
Stay to frolic in the water and bask in the sun, bike/walk to Honeymoon Island, or hop a ferry, kayak, or paddleboard to Caladesi Island (rentals available from Sail Honeymoon). Call the Local Tiki Rides after 5pm for free group transportation to Downtown Dunedin to enjoy the many shops, restaurants, breweries and bars and explore all that Dunedin has to offer!
Cool side note – If you approach the causeway from the east on Curlew Rd, check out the new artwork on the water tower! Inspired by the Florida Gulf Coast Hope Spot and Dunedin’s Hope Spot “Home City” designation, Henry the Gopher tortoise has been partially completed!
